Description

Edward the Elder (899-924), Penny, Two Line type, Danelaw imitation, double concentric circles variation both sides, blundered legend reverse script, small cross pattée within solid inner circle, legend reads +EVDΛΛEARD REX, the first A inverted, the others unbarred within additional linear circle. Rev, blundered moneyer in two lines OHECY/ CRIDN, ‘Helygrid’, three crosses pattée between, trefoils above and below, double line border, 1.61g (S.1087; N.649 var; BMC II; CTCE – ).

Struck on a full flan with an imposing obverse legend script, encased within double linear circles. Reverse, elaborate with the blundered legend in two lines, some deposits and light encrustations, nevertheless pleasing. A rare example of a scarce type, slightly overstruck, a great untouched natural example of the two line type, attached to a first rate provenance. Good very fine.
